“It has been an honour and a privilege to serve the Greens in the parliament for the last 13 years and I have been humbled by the support given to me by our members," Mr Booth said.

Government Must Come Clean On Forestry Exit Funds Fraud and Non-Compliance

Federal Budget Priorities Liberal Self-Interest Over Tasmania's Interests

Desperate Harriss Seeks to Claim Credit for Private Forestry
“Put bluntly, Paul Harriss and the Hodgman Liberals are exposed for their blatant broken election promises to both ‘grow the forest industry’ and end all public subsidies to prop up Forestry Tasmania,” Mr Booth said.
Community Deserves Input into Police Station Closure
“Residents in Launceston’s Northern Suburbs are raising concerns over the potential closure of the Newnham Police stations, and the lack of information forthcoming,” Mr Booth said.
Repeal Pulp Mill Permit and Support Alternative Investment Options
“Given reported comments by the CEO of the Tasmanian Industry Chamber of Commerce, that the ‘proposed pulp mill was too far gone’, it is time the state also catches up with the times and the investor mood and repeal the pulp mill permit,” Mr Booth said.
